Hi, when baby #3 arrives, our oldest will be 10 and our newly "middle child" will be 5...I feel a little crazy when I think about the next 20 yrs of our lives...lol. Right now, the biggest thing we have to do is tell the older kids about the new addition. How have any of you told your older kids and how long did you wait before you shared it with them. We have not told ANYBODY yet, because we want them to find out first and from us, but it is killing me not telling my parents, grandmother, friends, etc.
When I found out I was expecting again my boys were 11, 9 and 8 we waited quite awhile to tell them also but they have been asking for another sibling for years. We just sat them down and asked them if they remember asking for another sibling and when they said yes I asked if they still wanted one when they said yes I showed them the U/S pic and said they were going to get a new brother or sister they were so excited.
